Abrim Tilmon

Abrim Tilmon, member of The Emeralnds, is credited as songwriter of the song Feel The Need, the B Side on Annie Lennox's single Cold.

Formed in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA, by the Tilmon brothers, Abrim, Ivory, Cleophus and Raymond, the Emeralds' first hit came in 1968 when "Show Time" reached the US R&B Top 30. The group secured their biggest US successes in 1972 with "You Want It, You Got It" and "Baby Let Me Take You (In My Arms)", but the following year "Feel The Need In Me', which failed to crack Billboard's Hot 100, peaked at number 4 in the UK chart. Three further UK hits followed, including, in 1977, a re-recorded version of their 1973 best-seller, but at home the Emeralds" career was waning. By 1977 Abrim Tilmon was the last remaining original member; sadly, he died from a heart attack five years later.
